lines and communities that once prided themselves of being the bread basket of the western united states. they would have heard about the frustration of seeing produce imported from china being handed out in these food lines to the very same american farmers who once applied the same produce to the -- supplied the same produce to the american world -- to the entire world. they would have seen the anger as the absent interior secretary's testimony to the committee was played back in which mr. salazar admitted that the obama administration has the authority to turn the pumps back on but chooses not to do so because that would be, quote, like admitting failure. there is some good news this afternoon, the day after our forum in fresno, the interior secretary relented to the extent of releasing 350,000 to 400,000 acre-feet of already allocated water to the central valley, having demonstrated the authority to release water that central farmers already own he now needs to follow through and release the watter that is being held hostage to the delta smelt. meanwhile, mr. nunes of california has

-span is a person under the law of the united states and constitutional holding. here is why -- if the fcc and fbi were to blow through these doors right now and turn off all the cameras and a subpoena your files, it would be c-span -- it cannot vote, it is not a citizen, and yet everyone would recognize that that is a fundamental violation of the rights of c-span. why? because at the end of the day, c-span, just like any other association of individuals, it is an association of the people that make up the entity. this is very important. we cannot skip past the idea that associations of individuals have their rights and keep it short shrift. have to be respected in a democratic republic. with regard to george sorus, campaign finance law requires them to spend independently all he wants, but the sec investigated import i believe two years for a book -- the fcc investigated him out for i believe two years for a book he wrote about george bush. if we are deciding if a book should be banned or if books are illegal or if books are not part of our debate, whether by george soros or any other individual,

for the night states -- the united states need to direct -- differentiate among different countries in the hemisphere. we have different priorities now. we are slow in washington on the hill and in the white house to come to that understanding. host: what is the political landscape in latin america? how has the landscape changed politically down there? guest: there is a much more diverse ideological group of countries such as venezuela and ecuador and bolivia which are not very friendly to the united states or to the market economy. on the other hand, we have a prpragmatic president likelula in central america. we have the problem of cuba and we have a terrible problem with haiti. host: on the issue of haiti, there is an article about a question of commitment and can the united states lead a long effort to rebuild haiti. what will the u.s. effort their say about our overall commitment to latin america in general? guest: the united states is best served by multilateral action. for example, the united nations peacekeeping force in haiti has been let for a number of years successfully
presently across the united states. president barack obama will meet with the top labor leaders on monday over his proposal to tax health care plans. this is" fo "washington journalr january 9. here is robert barnes this morning in "the washington post." a pending decision on whether restrictions on corporate and labor unions spent on political campaigns violates the first amendment. this arose from a question about whether conservative groups support of a documentary movie of hillary clinton + presidential pursuit violated the mccain-falling goeingold ac. justices said they would consider the larger question of whether it is constitutional to ban corporations and labour unions from drawing funds from the general treasuries to support or oppose candidates. many legal experts say they expect the court use its imminent% ruling in the case of citizens united purses the federal electorate commission for money paid by corporations, unions, or advocacy organizations. the case centers on whether spending restrictions apply to "hillary: the movie." the 2010 elections will bring the for large-scal

the united states knows pull well that there are two al-queda training camps, major ones in yemen, one in sanaway to the middle of the west of the country, the other in abyan province in the south. we know where they are. we watch them with our satellites but cannot actually launch missile strikes against them because al-queda keeps a lot of civilians around. >> we know of two al-queda camps and there's nothing we can do about them. >> we watch them every hour of every day but there are civilians. it's difficult for us to go in because of the backlash caused if we wiped out hundreds of innocent civilians in that kind of attack. that's why they keep them there. >> you happen to remember the uss cole, right. >> yes. >> and a guy who got help from yemen, presumably organized yemen to blow a plane out of our air and we can't take out their training camp. >> that's an argument a lot of people -- >> welcome to america's nightmare. >> exactly. civilian casualties. have to worry about collateral damage because of the backlash. if you go in, wipe out those training camps, all you do, if you cau
back and forth. and exports from the united states has increased quite a bit. this year and one month we had sort of a setback. that is common because the numbers are released you a lot by borrowing. they shipped and plans one month and won the next, and that can make a big difference in the trade figures for that one month. it is a general trend, exports are rising pretty strongly. that is pretty good news for the american worker because it means maybe we are becoming more competitive and maybe we can sell more things. >> host: to job creation. carol, republican. good morning. >> caller: yes. i have a question in regards to the health care affects on new job creation and what it will do to the job economy. one of the questions i have, their is a lot of corruption in the city of chicago, and a lot of the newspapers. husband has been in jail for a couple years. while he was in jail for embezzlement and corruption he wrote the book that is the foundation of health care. is that the same? thank you. >> guest: to that health care. make the broader connection. it is really rough. a lot of
the president of the united states cares more about the rights of terrorists than he does protecting the american people. now, does any sensible person believe that? no. but that is driving the narrative in the mainstream media. not on fox. >> moyers: give me your explanation of why you think nbc, ge, and david gregory constantly ask newt gingrich on and not nancy pelosi? >> i think because the right wing media, fox, the "wall street journal", "the weekly standard", et cetera, et cetera, the heritage foundation, they have been so successful at defining the terms of the debate that the mainstream media accept their definitions of the issues and the parameters of discussion without even knowing they're doing it. and this infection has been going on for decades. and when the white house tried to take it on, in the form of taking on fox, the media reacted, "oh my god, you're attacking a sister network." that was the phrase of one of the abc correspondents. they should recognize that there are some people doing honest journalism and some people doing propaganda. and those people doing pro
here and to try to make it more amenable for companies like yours to create jobs in the united states? >> well, obviously, we're in the united states for the talent that is there and also the association with where our rnd departments are in new york state. new york state made it attractive years ago for us to look at that as a region to put manufacturing in place based on taxes, based on incentives, based on r&d. so the united states needs to keep focusing in on that and to leverage that innovation network that always has been there via the universities and the companies that are there. many of our major customers are based in the united states. many of the fabulous companies that we'll serve, many of the 150 -- >> do they need tax incentives, things like that? >> absolutely. tax incentives, making sure that we can have the best and brightest remain there and not leave our shores to go. but as a global company, we're in the united states, we're in europe, and we're in asia for the purposes to locate where our customers are, but also to have access to the best .brightest around the wo
ask them how much, exactly, of this to you deserve by virtue of being a banker in the united states? even though you have been saved by the federal government. our sec person just call in all of our tax dollars. we are honest, government of biting folks for whom taxes are regulated, the banks were bailed out, saving these people, the bankers, their jobs, and etc.. now i want to ask them how do you explain tehe math? how is that benefiting? how is that fair? host: some of the names that we will hear from -- here is the photo from the paper -- "banks testifying before the committee last february, today they will hear from lloyd blank ein, jamie diamon, brian moynihan. leaders in congress said that they were not interested in debating the bankers. their purpose was to get information and it was more important than shaming anyone. for the chief executive at jpmorgan chase, the chief executive at goldman sachs, bank of america, and morgan stanley, that is good news as they prepare for their 9:00 a.m. appearance." john, what would you ask the bankers today? caller: probably 20 different q
in the united states have to turn for information is social media. cnn has set up a haiti desk to monitor the pleas for help and bring you many of the heart wrenching stories and pictures that the survivors want the world to see. >>> and officials say they cannot even begin to guess how many casualties there are. haiti is one of the poorest countries in the world. and there is barely any emergency response to speak of. pentagon officials say they're already working on shipments of humanitarian aid, but getting there will be tough, since the control tower at the airport in port-au-prince is gone. >>> scenes of horror and devastation in haiti this morning, 13 hours after a catastrophic magnitude 7.0 earthquake shook the capital city of port-au-prince and the surrounding area. still not clear how many people are dead at this point and how much more misery has been happied on the most desperate, disaster-prone area in the hemisphere. but one thing is certain, this is an unimaginable disaster. we're using the global resources of cnn to bring you have the most complete coverage of the earthquak
direction from where america wants to go. it will allow the biggest corporations of the united states to engage in buying and selling of elections. if you look at the staggering figures in the four to 100 companies and the revenues they have with profits, they can now unleashed directly in these elections, and that has potential to totally up and our system and corrupt the process in a way that i think should alarm every american citizen. just think of some hypothetical. as my colleague said, we're still going through the court decision. but imagine aig, just received millions of dollars of taxpayer money, being able to turn around spending money to advertise against people who disagreed with the agenda. think about the biggest firms on wall street at a time when you're trying to hold them accountable, to take money and defeat those who call for greater transparency and accountability on wall street. think about corporations, u.s. corporations, whose main financial interest and a majority profits come from investments in china and other places around the world,. their profit margins a

in mexico city. i'm at a home depot in mexico city, significant because in the united states home depot has been surfing for years withing innive tiff same-story sales. here in mexico, positive same-store sales continuously for the last five years, in fact, mostly double digit sales? why? how? i sat down with frank blake, the ceo of home depot to ask him, why mexico? >> mexico, first, it's a large economy and it's on right. i think it's the 11th largest economy in the world. it's contiguous to the united states so it made a lot of sense from, you know, how we can support that business as it was growing and its connection back to the u.s. consumer. we obviously have a very large hispanic population in the united states and one of the -- one of the hopes and, in fact, reality is that we've grown in mexico is how its helped us back here in the u.s. >> how? >> well, a couple of examples that helps on product because, you know, consumers in mexico have some product deaf inity that then we can bring into the u.s. a small example would be on detergent. there's a detergent brand fabuloso that sells

frankly the united states will be safe and needs to be safe and this administration will do whatever it takes. >> this view that we don't call it war on terror and we look at enemy combatants or rephrase the national priorities to be domestic ones and not advocating going to war with any one, preemptively or otherwise, that maybe with the best of intentions here and maybe even assuming the purist of heart what the president has done is provided opportunities for bad guys? >> well, right now, neil, this administration came in with a mind set that it felt like national security issues and the war on terror should be downgraded. they didn't want to discuss them. >> right. >> they wanted a policy of engagement throughout the world. if we extend the hand of welcome they will learn that we are good people and we will do that. i think we are learning, quite frankly, around the world whether it is with al-qaeda, venezuela, iran, that we have extended the hand and guess what, it has been bitten on numerous occasions and quite frankly the american people are beginning to get a little more conc

of the united states and those of us in congress have to do a much better job refocusing on the basic things everyone understands. you do a good job on your show, if you ask citizens about what this health care plan is about a lot don't know. a lot would support it if we explained it better. >> anthony wiener from the great state of new york. what way do we go forward if we are truly going to reform the health care system we have to be honest about the problem. yes. 46 million don't have health insurance. what is that a symptom of? does it not stem from a government controlled by special interest more concerned with catering to the special interests than solving our problems. we have an inefficient employer-based health care system, created in 1942 to incentivize women to come into the work force because so many young men were at war. it is 2010. that system has been left intact and encourages overpaying and overspending while limiting personal choice and making insurance company executives rich while overly empowering union leaders to negotiate those employers. at the same time we as indivi

. but none of the largest deals that were done during that period in the united states have gone bankrupt. if you take the 20 largest deals done in a bubble period, so-called, none of them have filed for bankruptcy. some of them have problems, but actually, they're being re structured and i think many of them will get good returns for their invest everies. >> is 2010 the year that private equity can build up and roll them back out? >> you'll see a lot of ipos this year. but he'll see a lot of strategic sales, sales of company to strategic buyers because they're back in the market, as well. and financial buyers will buy things from other financial buyers. so i think you'll see a fair amount of buying activity this year. >> joe is in the studio and he has a question, too. >> i love the general fighting the last war, david. that's so apt. and i can mention about five really well known pundits that are fienting the last war. and none of them actually make investments or run private equity firms, which it's easy to be that way if you actually don't have to, you know, be involved in the economy
, thank you for being here today. in your testimony you state that in your capacity as united states treasury secretary, you were not involved in any decisions with respect to payments to aig's counterparties. and that you were not involved in any of the decisions concerning aig's disclosure of those payments. i'd like to accept that at face value, mr. paulson, except the critical decisions concerning payments to counterparties were made after the passage of the emergency economic recovery act by congress at your request. and the emergency economic recovery act made the treasury secretary responsible for the use of funds authorized by congress. negotiations on the counterpart of payments by the federal reserve bank of new york, did not begin until november 6, 2008. the funding of the payment of the counter claims is backed by funds made available under the emergency economic recovery act. so, mr. paulson, doesn't it make it your responsibility to know how those funds were used? >> i think you'll find, congressman congressmen, and i think the secretary reported this, that t.a.r.p. inv
can these survivors go? what do they have to look forward to when they get there? the united states and some other countries have been generous with aid, but as far as taking relph f refugees, that's a different story. any haitians in the u.s. as of january 12th when this earthquake occurred, can apply to remain in the u.s. for 18 months, but that doesn't address the number of people in haiti who have nothing to live -- nothing to do while they're there, no -- no income, no home, where do they go. mark heckfield joins us now, he's in new york. he's with the heebrew immigrant aid society. he's helping relocate haitians. what happens to the hundreds of thousands of hairtians who don' have a home and no livelihood? >> this is no option for those trying to escape the disaster. the u.s. is trying to bring in those who need medical treatment and they're bringing in orphans, but there's no right to flee natural disasters, so my understanding is there is trying to find places in haiti to stay as idps or internally displaced persons and they will be setting up idp camps for that purpose. >>

. this is a guy that's taken it up before. chris dodd ran for president of the united states and he moved his family to iowa for the caucuses to run for that office. it was a long, long, long shot race, but he was willing to take it on. this one also looked like it would be a long shot race and maybe with the death of his close friend ted kennedy. >> i think there may be self-sacrifice involved and democratic leaders are eager to hold the seat and they'll have a better chance with the attorney general richard blumenthal. we'll talk more about -- >> senator dodd has approached the microphone. let's listen to what he has to say. >> in the neighborhood with all these people gathered around. happy new year and good morning to everyone. every six years over the past three decades i've invited you to my home to seek re-election on the united states senate. on each of these occasions i've begun my remarks by observing that every important journey in life begins and ends at home. today is no exception. what is different about today, however, is not to announce the beginning of yet another campaign fo
